Coil spacers?

ok so I was thinking of getting some rubber spacers for my zj. We have them where I work for about 20 bucks for all 4 wheels. I was wondering if anyone has used these before, and the results they had as far as ride and handling. Or if theyre even worth it to buy.

they look somewhat like this more or less:

I thought these would be good since i only want about an inch and a half of lift.

Buy actual coil spacers, but you'll also need longer shocks if you don't want to kill yours quicker.

Thousands of people use the budget boost, including myself. I'm running 2" spacers with extended shocks and front/rear adjustable track bars.

The ride quality isn't really affected. It really depends on the brand of shocks you get, don't cheap out.

I would recommend replacing all four coil isolators since your taking the springs out anyway. Mine were rotted and crushed to hell.

yea I was going to change them. I just replaced my shocks with monroe gas shocks but they seem off. Like the jeep isnt heavy enough for them and the front end lifts way too much when I step on the gas. It floats like a boat all over the road.. guess ill be getting a new pair...
